locally they're weather right now will be moving over here. what a coincidence. bitter cold winds as we go through tonight. it's very windy outside now. feels a lot colder. by tomorrow morning the start off your weekend it's going to feel below zero through a majority of the area. really cold start to your saturday. then we go into sunday. we're tracking rain and know through the area and this will lead into monlds morning as well. let's take a look at the morning temperatures tomorrow or morning feels like temperature when you factor in the wind. minus 4 waking in allentown tomorrow. feeling like a minus 2 in pottstown. philadelphia feeling like 2 degrees and feeling anywhere from zero degrees to maybe 1 degrees in you're lucky. a cold windy start tomorrow morning. here is a look at the big picture. you see all the wet weather down around arizona right where we saw the rain in the video. this weather system will be tracking across the country and
moving into our area. we have two different tracks that can play out. two different forecasts but we're watching them closely because a small shift in the track could mean snow for some. rain for others. we'll be watching this very closely. by monday morning we could see an area of low pressure to the south. rain could stay a little farther to the south. in this situation we can see more snow across that jore majority of the area. really not too much different. the slightest change in the track could make a big difference depending on where you live. if the area of low pressure is closer to philadelphia we could see the rain/snow line farther north which would mean more rain starts to move into the area. less snow through the entire area. as far as the chance of snowfall, 4" or more falling through this event in the allentown area. we have a high chance of that. through the philadelphia area medium chance. south jersey and delaware that
chance will stay low as we expect mainly rain or mix out of this event. the area where we say medium chance which is the critical area we're wamping for the rain/snow line which could dictate where we see quite a bit of rain or snow. something we're watching very closely. i think this may be an event where we have to watch it move in and set up and see where the cold air is placed as we get closer. windy and very cold as we go through tonight. 12 degrees philadelphia. 8 degrees in the suburbs and areas north and west. tomorrow windy and bitter cold through the day. it's going to actually feel colder when you factor in the wind. we go into sunday. we'll have the late rain and sthoe moving in. again the critical area that i showed you is going to be around the philadelphia region. that's where the rain/snow line will be. it's the rain snow/line is south of philadelphia that means we get know if the line is flort of philadelphia, we get rain which would impact the snowfall tote
it wills. this will be something we'll be watching very closely. you need to remember that either way you got to stay updated through the weekend. if yoir not in front of a tv we'll be updating you on social media. >> get that app on your phone. it's great. >> things can change constantly with this. through the weekend you cannot pay as much attention but you really have to this weekend. >> we'll be updating. >> and cold tomorrow. you just want to stay inside and not run any errands. >> i got a pass. i don't have to run any errands. >> you have to talk to your wife about that. we're not finished talking about the super bowl? >> could we ever be finished. they're out in arizona. they're not dealing with any of that nasty weather. jeremy will discuss his contract negotiations with the eagles. the sixers welcome back an old friend tonight who took on the minnesota timberwolves. we have highlights ahead.

philadelphia region you have the compassion and security of blue cross. giving you the confidence to move forward. independence blue cross. live fearless. . if you're skiing in the poconos this weekend i'd add the deep freeze layer. >> it's already feeling like 12 degrees below zero in the g poconos now. it kind of hurts when you walk outside even here for philadelphia and the surrounding regions. it already feels like single
digits. i want sthoe i want to show you the two different scenarios. rain through parts of south jersey and delaware. this track would give us more cold air, more snow and rain farther to the south. this is one scenario. we're also watching a different set up. this would be giving us a little warmer air moving in. you see sunday 10:00 p.m. there's rain/snow line already. we'll be sehv5ájz and snow moving in. this right around philadelphia notice how there's more rain here in the scenario. in this case more warm air moves in. rain/snow line north of philadelphia. it would mean more rain for the area. this will be one of those situations where we have to watch it set up as it's moving in and see where the cold and warmer air because a little shift in this track could make a big difference for a few counties something to raep keep track of. as we go into tomorrow morning windy, really cold. we're going to be tracking that storm. >> something's coming. some kind of mix.
